Aldi has announced it is partnering with award-winning supplier Oakpark on a exclusive range of Farm to Fork Christmas ham and bacon.

The retailer said it is thrilled to cast a light on Oakpark as part of its #FarmToFork series, which aims to celebrate Aldi’s talented network of local Irish suppliers.

Ahead of the festive season, Aldi and Oakpark have come together to develop an exclusive range of Farm to Fork Christmas hams and bacon. Available in stores now, the range includes Irish ham and bacon products that promise to elevate any Christmas spread.

Based in Cahir, Co. Tipperary, Oakpark is a family-owned pork and bacon producer. It is part of the Brett Group, which was first founded by Bridget Brett and her four sons in 1940 – today it is run by her great-grandsons. From humble beginnings, Oakpark has evolved into an award-winning multinational company.

Oakpark started working with Aldi in 2012 and now supplies more than 30 pork and bacon products to 160 Aldi stores nationwide. This year, Aldi and Oakpark were delighted to have several products garner recognition at the prestigious Irish Quality Food and Drink Awards and Blas na hÉireann Irish Food Awards. Among the winning products were the classic Specially Selected Hickory Smoked Irish Streaky Bacon Rashers €2.25 and the delicious Specially Selected Beechwood Smoked Maple Flavoured Back Bacon Rashers €2.49.

Speaking about the partnership, John Brett from Oakpark said: “Here at Oakpark, we are thrilled that our partnership with Aldi has gone from strength to strength over the past 11 years, now being stocked in 160 stores nationwide. We are particularly proud to supply the exclusive range of quality assured Christmas hams and to be a part of the celebrations of families across the country this festive season.”

With Aldi and Oakpark’s Farm To Fork Christmas range, customers can rest assured that they are enjoying fully traceable, premium quality ham and bacon, produced with care and expertise by an Irish family business.
